About Digital Atlas of the Human Skeleton


Over a decade ago, Janet Padiak, William Barek and I, supported by the University of Toronto Scarborough, undertook a project to assist students in learning about the human skeleton outside the classroom setting. A CD Rom was produced and over 1000 copies were sold. Given the improved computer-based delivery environment that exists today, we can make this resource available to students and interested individuals now over the intranet.

Provided that the source is acknowledged and it will not be used by a third party for profit, the digital atlas of the human skeleton is free of charge.
